Short CV

He is Engineer and Engineer Doctor in Telematics Engineering from the Universidade de Vigo, where he is currently Associate Professor. His research field has always been related to modeling and performance analysis of communication networks and traffic engineering. However, in recent years his interests have focused more on the application of social networks and gamification in education. He is co-author of 15 scientific articles published in journals indexed in the JCR (most of them in the Q1 and Q2 ranks, and with an H index of 8) and more than 50 communications to conferences. He has six-year term of research (1998-2003, 2004-2009 and 2010-2015), in addition to having directed and co-directed 3 doctoral theses.
